What ever happened to the second PTY-SAL? I now it was "legally" blocked by Salvadorean congress, but i havent heard anything else.

Any news?

It is still in litigation, although it is an open and shut case for CM. This was just a stall tactic of poor taste on the part of TA.

I dont understand why though. I am not discounting the posibility. I just dont see the threat to TACA from a second PTY-SAL flight.

Sorry, the second non stop flight will be E190. My mistake.

It seems CM is gonna use the E190 which was going to fly the 2nd SAL flight to GUA.
MGA-GUA-MGA is a very lucrative market for them, so I see no point to split the evenning/morning flight between MGA and GUA.
I wish CM would end that GUA non-stop in BZE, but the morning departure time for a BZE-GUA-PTY would scare anyone.

Good for Guatemala, they needed the second daily flight to PTY, last year I went to Panama twice and both flight each way the Plane was full. The flight is operated by a 737-700.

If they continue to Belize the flight has to depart BZE at lease at 5:00 am, maybe they can do this with the noon flights.

They will keep the MGA-GUA-MGA evening flight, they will just add a direct nonstop. GUA will have 4 daily flights to PTY, 2 direct 2 nonstop.

About BZE, i think this route is just a matter of time, it would be very convinient for americans who want to got their.

And for the connections to KIN/POS (BGI who knows?) without having to fly via MIA!
